What photography gear do you use?
I currently shoot with Sony bodies and lenses. My main camera body is the Sony a7Riii and my most used lenses are the Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 and Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8. You can check out the full list of my camera gear here.
What camera would you recommend for a beginner?
The Sony a6000 series has some excellent starter mirrorless cameras (a6000, a6300, a6500). I would suggest you get the kit lens at first (the lens that comes with the camera) and then upgrade once that is available to you.
The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 V is a powerful compact camera if you are wanting an all-in- one small and versatile option (note that you cannot switch out the lens).
Sony recently came out with the a7iii, which is a fantastic all-round camera for amateur photographers looking to capture high quality photo and video content without breaking the bank.
How do you afford to travel so much?
My current job as a freelance travel photographer, blogger and social media influencer allows me to travel for a living. Prior to this, I funded my own travels during and post university by saving every penny I could and prioritizing travel in my life. I have a blog post about this – check it out here.
How did you become a full-time photographer & blogger?
It took a lot of time, hard work, research and practice. I worked at my passion for photography, blogging and Instagram as a side hustle whilst maintaining a 9-5 job. Over time I was able to build up enough skill, experience and a social media following to begin collaborating with brands, tourism boards etc., and eventually take it full-time. Read more about my story here.
How did you grow your Instagram following?
I have a whole blog post about how I grew my Instagram by 200k in 12 months – check it out.
I would say the important aspects of growing a following on social media is producing unique and eye-catching content, being consistent, and genuinely engaging with people.
